Upcoming installation for Radical Essex Architecture Weekend

We are thrilled to have been commissioned by Focal Point Gallery to produce a temporary installation at Silver End Village Hall as part of the Radical Essex Architecture Weekend, taking place on 10th-11th September.

One of the pioneering sites for British Modernism, Silver End is a unique model village created by the Crittall family, of metal windows fame. Our installation translates the spirit of experimentation that the Radical Essex programme celebrates, into our own exploration into lightweight engineering and methods of creating the maximum visual and spatial impact with the least possible material consumption. 

Influenced in form and colour by constructivist sculpture, graphic design of the Crittall period, and Cedric Price’s experimental engineering, the installation is created from lightweight aluminium poles and a kilometre of shockcord. It is designed to be easily demounted and erected on multiple occasions and with the potential for alternative configurations.

Focal Point Gallery are curating this fantastic event, celebrating the county's pioneering role in twentieth century architecture - please do come along and view our installation and attend some of the tours, talks and events that are taking place around the county over the weekend - more information here!

We’re delighted to have worked on this with our regular collaborators Momentum Engineering and our wonderful local metal fabricators Wesbroom, who take time out of their regular work making trailers and fencing to meet our unusual demands.
